No. The dog is in the room while a group of people contact the dead, which may make some viewers worry for him, however he does not get hurt.

A kangaroo is left to die slowly, it's implied it was hit by a car. A character makes out with a dog.

Kangaroo is dying on the roadside after presumably getting hit by a car. The main character visualises the kangaroo twitching in death twice after the initial scene

A dying kangaroo is featured early in the film. It makes several pained and mournful sounds. The animal is CGI, but appears very realistically.

// spoilers //
The main character's mum likely committed suicide while her late teens daughter was still a minor, so it depends if you consider that abandonment.

After multiple people allow a child to go through the ritual, they later tell the main character that she was the only one who agreed to it.

/spoilers/ there is a scene where a ghostly manifestation of a character’s parent (but not the real parent) physically attacks the character. It may be triggering, especially as it depicts a teen girl struggling against her father on top of her.

//spoilers// a girl is seemingly thrown around by a demon in the form of her father- it isn’t her actual dad, but it could still potentially be triggering

No, but there may be triggering parallels with the way the protagonist becomes a ghost herself

Themes relating to addiction are central to the plot, as possession is presented as a high, a risk you just can’t stop taking, a thing you do at parties

another comment on here says the sleep harassment part was supposed to be comedic to the audience, and i get where theyre coming from as the scene isnt a very serious one, but i and all the people i know who saw the movie genuinely found the scene disturbing rather than funny.

There's a blood orgy type vision in which there are some quick shots of what could be cannibalism. That's what I thought was going on, at least. It's very fast and meant to be disorienting and hard to make out but I definitely thought people were being eaten.

If you stretch the definition of “body horror” a bit, one character who is hospitalized after a possession goes horribly wrong slowly looks sicker and worse and his skin is more mottled as the movie continues. One eye is puffed shut.

But compared to classic body horror movies such as The Fly (1986), Rabid, Contracted, Spring, Cabin Fever, Videodrome, Scanners and Afflicted, this film doesn’t really fit the definition of a “body horror” sub-genre. There a several violent and gruesome moments, though, and the audience in the theater I was in yelled “HOAH!” at a few shots, but it’s more gore than traditional body horror.

A character cracks his head on a porcelain side of a tub and hard floor, then licks up his own blood from the floor while laughing. But again, that’s more violence and gore than actual body horror.

(SPOILERS) Two scenes in particular have excessive gore. A character repeatedly smashes his face against a table, then a mantle until his face is bloody and disfigured. Later, the same character smashes the back of his head against shower tiles until they crack and he bleeds, then begins licking the blood up.

A character stabs another character in the side of the neck (hard and fast) with a sharp pair of scissors. Lots of blood.

The hand which the characters use to contact the dead is rumoured to be the embalmed amputated hand of a medium or satanist, with some kind of plaster or stone covering the actual hand. We don't see this amputation take place.

safe! when the characters get possessed, they gag and choke a little. and there's lots of gurgles and water sloshing sound effects/ambience that might be slightly triggering, but there's no vom scenes or visuals at all throughout.

I think this is up for interpretation, though it's never directly mentioned. There's a traumatic moment in the past. There are definitely lingering issues. But that doesn't necessarily constitute a disorder.

About halfway through the movie, there is a scene where it’s unclear exactly what’s happening, but a character is trapped among many others, and they’re closely packed around him. This could be triggering.

1hr and 10min there is a scene where the main character is possessed in a hospital room and a bloody scene of many spirits/patients flash before her eyes. There is a flash of a femme-person and a newborn baby covered in blood in what looks like a bathtub. It's implied they both die in childbirth.

The main character dies; she ends up on the “spirit side” of the conjuring game.

Her dad, her friend, and friend’s little brother survive though.

SPOILERS If you want to avoid gore, look away when Riley (14 year old younger brother) gets possessed and then any time he starts to move after that. There’s still blood/stabbing type violence in other moments (other comment is accurate with the details) but these are the most graphic
